3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6oz nip bottle from a trade from a ways back... Pours still with amostly transparent golden cidery hue throughout. Minor leggy traces after swirling... Smooth clean floral honey character, touch of pineapple but somewhat missing out. Mild and subtle white wine notes. Expecting a bigger fruit component ... Citrus, pineapple fruit notes pair alongside a mostly sweet honey backing. Nice clean combo of wine and honey. Somewhat crisp, medium bodied, smooth with a modicum of spicy booziness on the backend.

Poured a yellow color from the bottle with aromas of citrus, oranges, lemons, light peach and some mangos thrown in. Flavors were sweet honey, a mixture of a citrus salad, and soft mango on the back end, a nice mead, and very drinkable for the abv.

Brought to Tom’s by Chris, thanks! Pours a still light yellow in color. Nose is fruity with some backing sweetness typical of Kuhnhenn mead. Flavor is pretty indiscernable fruit, but there is definitely soft fruit flavor there. There is sweetness as well. Moderate mouthfeel, light sweetness, somewhat dry, and a moderate finish. This was a bad review on my part, but this is a tasty mead and should definitely be sought out.

Bottle shared by BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours light yellow with no carbonation. Nose is sugary honey, real mellow fruitiness, but I don’t get mango or citrus from it. Same taste--real sugary and fruity. Thin and slick with no carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has a nice light citrus note with a good combination of sweet mango and honey. Flavor begins with some dry honey and citrus but becomes sweeter and adds a nice note of mango.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear light yellow color. Very, very fruity smelling. Lots of sweet melon notes. Medium mouthfeel. Not as sweet as I thought it would be and has a touch of a nutty taste that pairs well with the fruit notes. Belgian candy as well. Apples. Very tasty.
